Just went out tonight to see how it was and well blueberry streatch is wet as hell. All holes are fi8lled with water. Jensen is nice mix, holes are wet but not as full as the other areas, enough water though that the creek is running down the trail, kinda nice. Be a good time to hit that stuff first then go make a loop up in Twin Lake on the ceder creek trails. here's a map if you need one of those for there...

LOL cake you say huh, I remember a time well you know what I'm talking about.
Yeah these trails are not extreme by no means but a nice loop to go out for a few hours and enjoy the day and have a good time. But there are some nice hills to climb out there though.


And I may end up going but got a lot going on so we'll see. But you know me itching to get back out, just can't play in the deep holes just yet.

Sullivan Sahara is illegal, if you were thinking of going there. Other than those, if you know of some trails I'm unaware of, PLEASE get a hold of me! I LOVE hitting new stuff!!!!"
this was a quote from trail fanatic.
so we are planning to start at jensen rd.
we may be meeting up at my friends place on taft road alittle after noon maybe 1 oclock he will post on here tonight with the details.
If Sullivan Sahara is the sand area west of Maple Island it is open again. Been out there a few time this year already. There is a sign off Maple Island with the hours it's open.

Yeah, I know what your talking about, and a few others here know as well... That was snow, ice and stock tires... that didn't mix.

I didn't think you were capable of "staying out of the deep stuff".

I think your totaly right, its sounds like there might be a few stock rigs comming out so if the holes are too deep we can mess around there 4 a while then head out to the loop. i dont think any stock jeep/4x4 would have trouble out there.

There is one stretch where there are like 6 holes that hold water and mud, which you may or may not want to go to, but as far as most the other loop, was dry and sanding. Went through about hallf of it on my way home today. Should be a nice day as well for a ride.
